When life throws curve balls

Hello Everyone,

It has been awhile since i have written any reviews or posted on my sites.. The truth of the matter is that life happened and now i am picking up the pieces and trying to move forward with my life. Well have a seat, grab some snacks and let me tell you about the events that occurred over the last few months.

You all may or may not know.. but back in September my mom was admitted to the hospital where we faced uncertainty about her faith and what was going to happen going forward. prior to all this she also had knee surgery in February 2019. She was always in pain a year before the surgery and even after the surgery.

My mom was struggling with walking even with a walker and the doctors always told her it was normal and fine but she just could not walk on her own even after going to physical therapy. Eventually she started going out once a week to get the essentials she needed other than that she stopped going out and about like she used to.

I feel like since she was living alone at the time (this was before her nephew moved in) she didn’t push herself hard enough, in a way i almost feel like she gave up and and fell into depression and no matter how much i would offer to help her or even get her food and try to eat with her she would always decline. It always broke my heart and i would voice my concerns to her but she would always say i know i am just in a lot of pain i wish i could.

My mom was always herself up until the day i got a call from my brother telling me my mom is in the hospital and they do not know whats wrong with her and to come down and say my goodbyes. I seen my moms nephew and he said my mom stopped responding and called 911. He said he would ask her questions and she would just stare off and not say a word and he did not know what was going on, and when the ambulance came she refused to go but after they talked to her she eventually agreed to go.

At the hospital it was rough and we learned my mom had dementia of an 80 year old and my mom was only 65 at the time. They also said that her kidneys were failing her and they did not know if she would make it through the night and to say our goodbyes. It was the most heart wrenching moment i had to go through, it felt like time stood still.

Since than my mom somehow powered through and made it but she was different once she came to. She didn’t remember who some of us were and she did not know why she was in the hospital and wanted to go home and so we all reassured her she was fine and that we are all family and here for her. Not even a week later we had some family from California come in and visit her and i remember her saying my whole family is here to see me, and it was just a happy moment for everyone.

After staying in the hospital and getting a feeding tube put in nose and stomach (multiple different times since she pulled it out) she was off to a hospice to recover and after that stay she was put in a group home for about two months. This group home was not my favorite just because i felt like my mom was not getting the care she needed and i could see my moms health deteriorating very fast.

Received another call from my brother telling me my mom was admitted to the hospital again but this time it was due to her fever and being sick. When i got down to the hospital the nurses informed me that my mom was not sick or have a fever that it had gone down but that she had open wounds that got infected.

I was amazed because the group home did not mention how bad it became and they said she had 1 when she had a few. The nurses also showed my bf and i photos and my gosh my mom does not deserve that! One wound had black skin and the others were more of deep wounds either way it was not good.

After going through all of that for the next week or two she was eventually moved to her finally group home. At this time in January we all knew it was not much longer yet my mom kept fighting and pushing even tho she did not talk or respond but i knew she was very much listening. Everyday in January that passed put me on edge to the max and i just did not want to loose my mom, i was not ready for it.

January passed and February was upon us and i was just happy that my mom was able to have another month to live. But things started to change very quickly and started noticing that my moms body was starting to give out on her and so i spent a lot more time with her knowing at any day she would pass. I watched my mom go from being in good health to watching her die a little more every day, it kills me inside and i feel like it has cause such a traumatic impact on my life that i could be possibly suffering from PTSD.

The day of February 11th 2020 i received a call at 1:15 pm to notify me that my mom took her last breath at 1:00 pm and that she wanted to inform me of her death. I thanked her very much for taking care of my mom on such short notice and that it means a lot to me.

It has been about a month, 1 week and 1 day since she has passed away and i am not really the same me. I miss her every day and i cry every day for her because my heart hurts so much and i hate this grieving process. I am still awaiting my mom’s ashes from my brother. He had mentioned other family members would like some of her ashes so he is trying to buy a few more urns and then he will give me mine. So i will continue to wait idk what to do with myself it is all so much.

So far i have been trying to be strong through all of this which has caused an impact with my work and personal life that i cut my hrs down to 32 and spend my time painting (picked up a new hobby) and trying to make sense of this crazy world. So this is why i haven’t been posting as much as i should or doing all the reviews like i should, but when life happens sometimes you have to take a break and realign yourself.

I want to thank you all for stopping by and reading about my latest post. It truly means alot to me!

Stay safe out there.. until next time!

Hello everyone, thank you all for stopping by and checking out my newest product review 👋🏼. It truly means a lot to me and I am very thankful for each and every one of you for the support and encouragement. You all keep me thriving!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, as mine was a nice relaxing four day weekend. 😊 Who is ready for Christmas? I know I am, looking forward to all the festivities with my friends and family. 🎄

Today I will be reviewing the lovely Cindy Bears Beauty Mystery Box (Small) $7.00 whom I found through IG. Let me just say I am truly excited to have ordered this small mystery box. Maybe it’s the thrill of the surprise, the uncertainty of what you will receive in the box. Gotta keep things interesting you know.

Cindy bears beauty is also offering a Christmas mystery bundle box (Large) will contain anywhere from 3-5 items from the shop. Some items are exclusive and limited to the mystery boxes. Other times could be lipglosses, lip scrubs, lip balms, chapsticks, body spray, body scrubs and many other things. These boxes are limited to 15 only and no two boxes are the same, they are also stuffed.

You bet your butt I ordered the Christmas Mystery bundle box (Large) $13.50 looking forward to trying out more products from the shop.

So who is Cindy Bears Beauty?

Business card for Cindy Bears Beauty

Cindy Bears Beauty is a small Latina owned business, who provides products that are vegan, natural, organic and cruelty free beauty products. with a range of products from Body Scrubs, Body Butter, lip balm/chapsticks, Glosses, Lip Scrubs, and body shimmers.

In the box you get anywhere from 1-3 items in this mystery box. This mystery box may include exclusive lipglosses only for this box, lip scrubs, body scrubs, chapsticks, and many other things. The boxes are fill to the top, and no two boxes are the same.

This was my first time ordering from Cindy Bears Beauty, what drew my attention was the fact that only a certain amount of boxes were going to be sold (15), so of course after reviewing the products, i decided i wanted to join in on the fun and get myself a mystery box and see what the hype was about.

Did not have any issues receiving my box except the occasional holiday mail delay, otherwise I received my box a day after it was suppose to be delivered.

When I received my box I was so excited and thrilled.. especially after a long day at work, it was a much needed treat. I couldn’t wait to sit down and film my unboxing as well as try out the products.

So here we go!

This little mystery box maybe small but don’t let its size fool you, it was definitely packed to the top with some awesome goodies. And when I mean goodies I did receive some candy too 😊

Check out the unboxing of the Mystery Box on My YouTube Channel and while you are there please Subscribe to my channel, it would mean so much to me! 👍🏼

The first item of business is the light purple hair scrunchie, I was like YESS just cause I have long hair and always put it up depending on the activity. Super soft and scrunchiful 😜 loving my hair scrunchie!

The next few items were some rad stickers which I ended up putting on my bong. 🔥💨

Skull face.
How cute is this?
Aweee love it.

As much as I was excited, I was also thrilled to have received a pumpkin spice lip balm, a new upcoming sample size that’s a blueberry (lips) lip gloss, moony (gray) lipgloss, purrrfect in purrrple (purple) lipgloss, Roll on (blue glitter inside) is a lip oil, brownie lip gloss.

The goods

Definitely got a nice selection of lip glosses and oils to give me that 90’s look i have been wanting to rekindle.

I really like the pumpkin lip balm just cause I always put lip balm on like a crazy lady only cause my lips chap a lot, this lip balm does the job and keeps my lips hydrated throughout the day and not to mention a subtle pumpkin scent.

Pumpkin lip balm

As for the glosses and oils I totally dig them a lot, the only issue I had was the new upcoming sample size blueberry lip gloss, it ended up leaking in the package but it wasn’t a big deal it was certainly an easy clean up. I did not realize the leakage until the end of the unboxing video.

New upcoming sample size blueberry lip gloss

Here are more photos of me using these lovely lip glosses. I am definitely loving them!

This one reminds me of the 90’s glossy look (moony lipgloss)

This glitter gloss has taken me back to the good old 90’s and I am just over the moon with this lip gloss.

Roll on Lip oil

This roll on Lip oil is the bomb, I have not personally tried anything like this, loving the way it keeps my lips looking healthy in this cold desert weather.

Purrrfect in purrrple
Purrrfect in Purrrple

Even tho this lip gloss looks like a light purple it certainly has a nice subtle purple tint to the gloss. Not over powering and certainly looks lovely, I highly recommend this one for a date night 😊

Brownie lip gloss

I am loving the light bronze tint that this lovely lip gloss has to offer, again not too much very subtle in color and certainly gives your lips character.

Needless to say I am totally digging Cindy Bears Beauty products! I can’t wait to try more of her products including skincare products.. Oh My! Just can’t wait to try them all out.

NYX On The Rise Volume Liftscara – Product Review

Hello everyone 👋🏼 Thank you all so very much for stopping by and checking out my newest product review!

For today’s product I will be reviewing the NYX On The Rise Volume Liftscara that I purchased from target for $8.79. I have always liked NYX brand, it’s definitely worth spending a bit more.. especially for this product.

The great part about coming across this product is the fact my boyfriend pointed it and out and said I should try it, since we didn’t find anything else I wanted. So I gave in and decided to give it a go and see how well this product works. I am excited to be able to share this product with you all.

I’m sure a lot of us dream of luxurious lashes without putting on falsies and calling it a day.. as much as I love falsies, I would prefer a mascara that lifts and gives my lashes more volume and that luxurious look I’m going for.

I have tried different mascaras and gone through different brands and have not found a mascara that I want to purchase over and over again. But I think I may have found the one tho..

So let’s dive right in and get to know this lovely product.

Do you love the look of a lash lift but not the price? Enter NYX Professional Makeup On The Rise Liftsacara. This ultra-high pigmented, vegan formula, matte black mascara is the first ever lifting and volumizing liftascara.

This first-of-its-kind lash lifting volume mascara features an innovative brush design that’s part hourglass, part rounded, coating each lash in its matte black formula for max lash lengthening!

Delivering quick-charge lift and volume in just a few strokes. Featuring an innovative applicator that’s part rounded, part hourglass to lift you lashes up to new heights! The “curling” effect results in a far-reaching fringe so that eyes look bigger and lashes look thicker, making it our most dramatic mascara to date.

Also cool: it works for all lash types. In a clinical study 95% of participants saw instant volume and 94% saw instant lift! Elevate your expectations with this high drama black volume that lifts eyelashes so freakin’ high, you just won’t believe it!

  • Volumizing mascara with lash-lifting abilities
  • Ultra-pigmented matte black formula
  • Works for all lash types
  • Innovative applicator & an elastomer brush head delivers high drama, intense volume & serious elevation
  • Cruelty-free

Let me just say after using this product I have completely adored this mascara, it’s formula makes my lashes like WOW! Nice and flirty definitely worth investing in and trying out!

I may have been hesitant at first but like anything you try in life you risk the chances but then move on to the next if it does not work out the way you would have liked the product to work out. And that is why I love to test products out.

Here is some video footage of me putting on the NYX on the rise volume liftscara. You can definitely see the difference and I am truly happy with my results.. Have a look!

Step: 1
Step: 2
Step: 3
Step: 4
Step: 5
Finished look!

What do you all think? Maybe something worth trying and out experiencing some WOW in your life? 😊

This liftscara has truly made me happy and my eyelashes thank me very much and I couldn’t be happier for that fuller lash look! I wear this product everyday going to work as well as lazy days to dressing up and going out. Everyday and night wear if you dare!

Looking for a mascara that gives your lashes volume as well as lifting abilities that work on all lash types? That does not clump! Well I highly encourage you to go to your nearest favorite store and pick this bad boy up and try it for yourself! I ensure you won’t be disappointed in the ending results.

I don’t know if another mascara will ever match up to this one.. but if one exists, I certainly want to try it out and see if it’s just as amazing as this one is! Here is to wishful thinking and testing out new products this holiday season!

Speaking of this season.. I have another great upcoming post about receiving a mystery box from Cindys bears beauty on IG. Also have some Birch box’s on their way! And so much more to be added for my upcoming blog post!

Incoco Nail Polish Appliqué in Spaced Out – Product Review

Hello everyone 👋🏼

Thank you for stopping by and reading my newest product review. The product I will be reviewing is the Incoco Nail Polish Appliqué in Spaced out.

I am so thrilled to be trying this product out! I’m not a big fan painting my nails and going out to get them done can be costly. So when I seen this product I knew that I would have to give it a try and see how I like them.

Say goodbye to drying time, smudges, and streaks of liquid nail polish! A girls worst nightmare! Incoco has revolutionized nail beauty by transforming liquid polish into the worlds first real nail polish appliqués. Get a brilliant, salon quality manicure in minutes. Proudly made in the USA.

The benefits to using this product is amazing! This package includes 16 double-ended strips.Comes with two nail wipes (to clean nail) and a mini file. Super simple and easy to use say goodbye to liquid polish! Hello nail appliqués.

Step 1: Remove from clear cover

Step 2: Peel polish strip

Step 3: Tear silver tab and select end

Step 4: Apply to nail & gently stretch to fit

Step 5: File excess

Here is a list of the Do’s and Don’ts


Store and use nail strips at room temperature. The product may become more pliable in the heat and more rigid in the cold.

Use immediately after opening — nail strips will begin to dry once they are exposed to air.

Clean and prep nails before application — buff and file nails, push back cuticles, and use an alcohol prep pad to remove any oils or lotions.

Apply thumbs last — start with pinky and work toward thumb.

Stretch gently for a perfect fit — stretch horizontally to make the strip wider, or stretch vertically to make the strip narrower.

Crease the strip over the nail edge before removing excess with your nail or nail file.


Do not leave nail strips in excessive heat or cold for prolonged periods of time. Do not leave strips under direct sun or LED lighting.

Do not apply lotion to hands immediately before or after application.

Do not apply strips over cuticles or skin. Push back cuticles and apply strips against or slightly above cuticle, so the strip adheres directly to the nail only.

Animal Testing

Incoco is proud to affirm that it does not currently conduct, perform, or commission animal testing.


Solids, Glitters & Designs


After giving myself a mini manicure I am completely in love with this brand and it’s sister brand Color street and coconut nail art which I have not tried at this time yet, but will certainly try very soon!

I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to try something new or wants a easy way to get salon nails at home! I just can’t believe how good and long lasting they are! I love how they have different sizes for fingers and toes. Easy to stretch on the fingernail to adjust the fit.

Speaking of long lasting these last up to 10 days! And just to live up to that, I do juggle clubs and hula hoop and I have had times where I went to a salon and got my nails done then juggled and chip my fresh nails. But I don’t have to worry about it with this brand because they don’t chip and actually last me just as long!

I hope you all enjoy reading my newest product review on the Incoco Nail polish appliqué in spaced out.

Until next time have a wonderful week! And check out my Instagram for more Products, testing, reviews and more.


Soap&Glory-PANROSA-Elf facial products -PRODUCT REVIEW

Hello everyone! 👋🏼

Thank you all once again for stopping by and checking out my newest post! It is truly appreciated from the bottom of my heart.

After a long week and weekend I needed some time to pamper my face and feel some sort of relaxation before starting another work week. So I have decided to take three products and use them for a lovely relaxing facial for the evening. My face thanks me and yours will too.

Before we begin the process we want to make sure the face and clean and dry. What I normally do is take a shower so this way my face and my body is clean for the relaxation process.

Now that my face is all clean i started the process with Soap & Glory Purifying De-Clog Mask ($5.49 – includes 2 capsules) I have used one of the capsules previously and I really like the product.

Benefits to using this product:

Beautiful ass skin! Declog those pores with this grime – gripping peel – off mask. Power packed with 10 amazing ingredients including bentonite & kaolin fine clay powders to help absorb excess oil.

Plus • Oil – absorbing Kaolin & clay powders. •Vitamin C & E. • oolong tea. • Lentil seed. • Sage. • Camomile & Ginger Extracts • White willow bark.

This peel off mask is the BEST stuff I have used so far hands down.

Not only are the ingredients awesome but this does include two capsules and a scoop is included so you don’t have to use your hands which can be a mess.

Apply a thin even layer onto clean, dry skin, avoid the eyes area, hairline, eyebrows and lips. Focus on the problem areas prone to open pores, especially the T-zone , nose and chin.

Leave the product on for about 20-25 minutes until it is completely dry, so this way you can peel off in one sheet.

Just a heads up.. This mask is tough on skin, so expect to pull a bit as you reveal fresh-looking skin. Gently pull upwards from chin to forehead. Rinse off any excess with warm water.

Step 1: Declog pores

Now that the first step is finished, let’s go ahead and move onto step: 2.

So I know most would only do one mask in a night or vis versa but I decided that after declogging my pores that my face needed to be hydrated.

The next product I will be using is the PANROSA Chondrus Crispus Hydrating Face Mask ($1.99) now I have never tried this product before, but I was excited to try this out.

Benefits to using this product:

This mask helps rehydrate dry skin the Chondrus Crispus is packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals that help skin look beautiful and healthy.

The hydration in this product is so wonderful and cool on the face. It is a simple paper like mask so be careful taking it out of the package and unfolding it.

Of course with a clean dry face apply the mask to the skin. You will want to leave it on for about 15-20 minutes. Once you are finished massage any remaining product into the skin.

Step: 2 Hydrate

And that is that with step: 2

I really love how it made my face feel softer and very much hydrated which is a major plus in my books.

Last but not least is Step: 3 which I am thrilled because it’s one of my favorite brands.. e.l.f Cosmetics. I have never tried this particular product so let’s see how well it works.

So for the last step to pampering my face would be the E.l.f Daily Hydration Moisturizer ($8.00) which I picked up from Target.

The benefits to using this product:

•Glowing healthy looking skin. •Lightweight •Fresh scented moisturizer •Infused with Purified water •jojoba •aloe •Vitamin E .

It’s also rich in antioxidants Shea butter, grape and orange.

All I do is take a small amount of moisturizer in my hands and gently apply to my face and neck until absorbed into my skin. You can use this daily as well.

Step: 3 Hydrate and Moisturize

I really like the fact it’s a daily moisturizer and I can use it in the mornings when I’m getting ready in the mornings. I also really like that after this process how glowy and hydrated my skin looks!

Glowy hydrated skin

Really like all three products to be honest with all of you, that I will be using these products again and maybe in a different mask routine or whatever the case maybe.

Highly recommend trying these products out even if it’s just separately. You will certainly be happy with the results!

I am completely happy with my results and the way my skin feels. Always take the time to pamper yourself and try new products out, only way to know what you like or dislike.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and reading my newest product review.

Have a wonderful week everyone 👋🏼


Update time

Hello everyone 👋🏼

Thank you so much for dropping by and reading my newest blog post.

As some may or may not know, I recently went back to work after a month off due to memory issues. Needless to say I feel like I just started this job even tho it was mentioned that I have been with my company for almost two years.

I am now on week two and so far I am feeling very overwhelmed with everything, I may have to consider going down to thirty one hrs a week to help ease me into my work. So we will see what happens tomorrow when I speak to HR.

On another note I have been receiving a lot of Happy Mail this last week. I am thrilled and happy with some of the items I have received, minus a few minor issues but overall I am content. I’ve been using the wish app to order random different items to try out.

I have come across some neato items as well as uh.. what is that and what is it for lol. My most recent item that I have gotten a lot of questions about on my Instagram page is the makeup washer.

Yes you read that right.. a washer to clean your makeup brushes. I have yet to use it due to just being busy plus I need AA batteries. But WOW! I have seen this on many makeup tutorials and videos that I have in and wanted it for myself.

After researching how to use it, since the instructions are in Chinese, it seems fairly easy to use! Pour in a cup of water with some soap, put in a sponge or a brush and press the button and BAM it starts cleaning the items.

To get all the yucky water out, take the hose on the side and place it in a little bowl and it literally drains it out.

Something I plan to do this weekend!

Again thank you all for stopping by and reading my newest post, it truly means a lot to me!

If you have a product you would like me to review or test out please send me a message either here, my email, Instagram as well as twitter and will get back to you.

Have a wonderful week!


e.l.f lip plumping gloss – Product Review

Hello everyone 👋🏼

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog! It really means the world to me. 🙏🏼 Hope you beautiful souls are having a wonderful start to your weekend. ✨

Today I decided to do a product review on the e.l.f lip plumping gloss 💋 now you may remember in my last blog post I did a full face look using e.l.f cosmetics and even tho I did review the products I did not do a full review on each product individually, so here we are.

Now I am thrilled to give you the deets on this product. Just because 1. It’s e.l.f cosmetics and 2. It’s a lip plumping gloss!

When I first went and picked up the e.l.f lip plumping gloss -Sparkling Rose- at Target ($6.00), was super excited to try this out just because I have always been a fan of lip plumpers. And like everyone else I also had my doubts as well, but If it does not involve surgery I am completely all for it lol.

I opened the product (I always do a smell test) It has a subtle light floral smell, kinda like a delicate but elegant smell. Taking it out of the tube was the right amount of gloss on the applicator, the gloss is a light pink color. You can apply this alone or add a balm before applying, I used both actually.

After applying the e.l.f lip plumping gloss, which went on super smoothly and again just the right amount of gloss on the applicator. I was impressed by the way the plumping gloss was working its magic!

My lips started tingling and I just knew that this product would do wonders, the tingling lasted for about 2-4 minutes but it was certainly enough to make my lips pouty, not like over dramatic lip filler look but it did give my lips the boost it needed.

Here are the benefits to using e.l.f lip plumping gloss:

-This Lip Plumping Gloss does help plump the lips with nourishing hydration.

-The invigorating high-shine formula also provides a soothing sensation while it volumizes.

-Enriched with Vitamin E and Coconut Oil to nourish and hydrate the lips for a soft, supple feel.

-The natural shades of shimmering, color add a pop to your look that perfect for work days and a night out.

Easy to take with you on the go, and different shimmering colors to choose from like Champagne glam, Sparking rose, Pink cosmo, mocha twist, and Peach Bellini.

Back in 2004 I had a dirt bike accident that resulted in facial reconstruction, meaning I have 9 plates in my face. Due to the surgery they had to go under my top lip to place a in my face and when the stitches healed up , my top lip went a bit smaller 😣.

I have tried multiple different products and non of them have held up like this product has. Which is AMAZING! And truly appreciate e.l.f cosmetics for coming out with this product, it is truly amazing!

If you have yet to try this product, I highly recommend that you go out right now and pick yourself up some e.l.f lip plumping gloss before you go out tonight! It’s Friday night and the feelings right, oh what a night!

I had a lot of fun testing this product out, and look forward to testing out more products as the days go by.

For any PR or Collaborations enquirers please email me at

Thank you all for stopping by and reading! Have a wonderful weekend.


Fall makeup look – e.l.f cosmetics – Product Review

Good day to all of you beautiful people out there. 👋🏼

I am super thrilled that fall is coming .. it’s pretty much next week lol but since I live in Arizona it’s always hot then we get a good month or two of “cooler” weather then back to being hot asf.

With that said I felt inspired to come up with something that was a bit more like a subtle fall look, nothing too vibrant something a bit on the lighter side.

I Wanted a look that turns heads.. and I got just that my boyfriend is living proof, all he kept doing all night was staring at me lol.. Felt a bit awkward 😅

But it made me feel really proud of what I have accomplished compared to years prior to doing my makeup. It was that booster I needed to keep pushing and practicing, and hopefully inspire others.

In this post I will be reviewing multiple different products that are mostly e.l.f cosmetics, but I do have a few other different brands Which i will be sharing in this post as well that I used for a full face look which I call the subtle fall look.

First I start off with a blank canvas.

Hi 👋🏼 I’m the blank canvas.

I normally start with my eyebrows and eyes then finish my face last. So I started with the e.l.f lock on liner and brow cream in Espresso. Purchased it at Target for only ($3.00)

Now this product glides on smoothly to sculpt, shade, and define brows, but I highly suggest to apply with a lighter hand if you are going for more on the light side with your brows.

But you can also use this as a eyeshadow and eyeliner for gorgeous, long lasting color. Now I have not tried it as a eyeshadow but I have used it as a eyeliner at one point.

The looks.
The inside.

To apply I also used the e.l.f precision dual-sided eyebrow brush which is FREAKIN AWESOME SAUCE! This dual brush is designed for precision application. I got this bad boy at Target for ($5.40)

A dual sided eyeshadow brush with a brush to shape brows into place, and a angled brush to sculpt and fill in the brow.

The custom designed triangular handle provides ultimate control, its also luxuriously soft, cruelty-free the white Fiber hairs help show exact placement of makeup on the brush for optimal amount of product for precise applications.

After I finished doing my eyebrows I just fell in love with these two products they work so well and I have waited a long time to find the right product to help get the eyebrows I want.

So now we move on to putting on e.l.f HD lifting concealer ($4.00) at Target, underneath my brows and on top of the brow area where I will use a foundation sponge and e.l.f concealer brush ($2.00) at Target, before I do I suggest to use setting power on the brows to help absorb any oils on the brows this way your brows stay put all day (which I didn’t do.) then I just blend it out with the sponge and use the brush to get the arches and underneath the brow.

The high definition, skin firming concealer hides imperfections to help regenerate the skin for added radiance. It also helps minimizes fine lines as well as helps even out skin tone. This formula is infused with Vitamin C, Green Tea and Mulberry to help improve skin texture.

Now that I got my eyebrows taken care of and blending the concealer in making my eyebrows looking flawless and what my boyfriend would tell me later is that they look are on “fleek” I nearly died laughing. I am now ready to get my face prepped.

My eyes can be a little tricky when applying eyeshadow just because I had my face reconstructed I notice certain things that make it difficult to even out.

I applied the e.l.f shadow lock primer onto my lids and brow area so my eyeshadow is lock into place, I have used this item for many years and still swear by it.

Also placed the e.l.f line and define tape ($3.00) and angled them in the right place by my eye so this way my eye shadow is in the right place and now everywhere else. I also cut the strips in half to help conserve the strips, they last so much longer that way.

For my eyeshadow I used the e.l.f opposites attract eyeshadow palette ($14.00) which is my favorite right now just because the colors in the palette are vibrant and others that sparkle ✨ and I feel you can do a lot with the colors! This is only the beginning people. Lol

For the look I used clever, chill , spicy, low key and genuine.

After applying on all the eyeshadow I then went in and used the NYX professional makeup that’s the point eyeliner hella fine ($7.69) to get more of a cat eye going, the product glides on smoothly with a matte finish.

Once I am finished with that I remove the strips and get ready for the Lashes.

So I picked up The creme shop ‘Dahlia’ 3D Lashes which are 3X Volume, 3X Length, and 3X Dimensions at T-j-maxx for $4.99. I have never used these brand of lashes but was thrilled to get them.

Applied with Kiss strip lash adhesive, another one of my favorite brands. Really like the way these lashes look and feel, barley clipped them since they fit just perfectly on my lids.

What I used to moisturized my face was the Aveeno positively radiant daily face moisturizer which I have used multiple times and like how radiant my skin looks but I also used the e.l.f antioxidant booster drops $10.00 at Target, which OMG I am digging the booster drops a lot!

All I did was dropped a few drops on my face took some moisturizer and applied it in a circular motion and let it absorb in my skin for a moment before applying my foundation.

Some of the benefits to the e.l.f antioxidant booster drops :


  • Booster Drops
  • Supercharges beauty products with antioxidants for added protection
  • Contains Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Snow Mushroom Extract
  • Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Snow Mushroom Extract
  • Add a few drops to any foundation, liquid or cream

It is a lightweight booster super-charges your beauty products with antioxidants for added protection. Can be used alone or added into any foundation liquid or creme.

A must have for your daily regimen!

Really loving the booster drops

Once my face has absorbed the drops and moisturizer I then apply my foundation, what I use is the Maybelline Fit me! In 222 True beige with my sponge.

After blending all the foundation in I then applied the High definition powder ($6.00) under my eye area and around my forehead, chin and bit on the nose, and let it sit for a moment and then blend it all out.

This product helps my makeup stays in place and makes my face look so flawless.

I then blended in some Maybelline Fit me Powder 222 True beige, added some e.l.f baked highlighter & bronzer to my cheekbones nose, chin, upper lip and forehead and again blended it all out.

Last but not least ..

Added on some e.l.f lip plumping gloss -Sparkling Rose ($6.00) for the finished look.

And I have to say I am super impressed by the plumping in the gloss it actually lasts for a little while and gives my lips a fuller plumping look! The smell is light and delightful, I got ‘Sparkling Rose’ and I will certainly be buying more of this lip gloss!

And lastly here is the finished look after using all of the products that was mentioned in this post.

Full face beauty

CALA Tangle Free Hair Brush – Review

Happy day to all of you beautiful souls out there. ✌🏼

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my newest product review. 🙏🏼 Very much appreciated.

And now onto the product review.

Today I have another pick of the day which is pretty cool specially for those of you who have tangly hair like I do, this product might just might be for you.

The llama Cala Tangle Free Hair Brush which I purchased from Tjmaxx for $2.99, but you can also purchase that one for $6.95 (website) or browse around on the Cala products website Here .

I am really enjoying the llamas on the Brush, which was my first instinct that I HAD to purchase it!

Lol 😝 another fun fact is I REALLY like llamas and think they are badass. I also have a stuffed animal that’s a llama named Larry. Don’t judge me. 🦙

Having tangly hair is a nightmare in my eyes.. I enjoy washing my hair and conditioning it.. but once I am out of the shower and let it air dry, my hair becomes a jungle.. specially trying to brush it when it’s damp or dry.. yeah forget it. 👎🏼

But on the bright side thank goodness for all the different products out there to explore and review!

What’s the deal with this Brush?

– Well first and foremost it Easily detangle’s wet & dry hair.

-Vibrant and exciting tangle free brushes.

-Ergonomic handles for silky, smooth hair.

My first impression’s on this Brush was like badass then it I was like ok let’s give it a go and see if it lives up to the whole “Tangle Free” game.

I really like how light weight the brush is and makes it super easy to store away or travel with it.

Anyways I was pretty surprised by the result with my hair being damped. Brushed through my hair without any issues! And love how my hair feels and looks silky smooth. Also works well on dry hair as well.

Overall this is a really cool product just by the looks and the way it works, plus you can pick other images for your brush on the website.

I highly suggest this product again for anyone who suffers from tangly hair even perfect for those with a sensitive scalp.

All natural
